I know everyone on here recommends the ISP Decimator, but I've been looking into the MXR Smart Gate a little bit. I saw it used today for $75 so I'm a bit tempted to go grab it.

All I ever see recommended here is the ISP Decimator and I was just wondering your guys thoughts on the smart gate.
It sucks. It's better than the BOSS NS-2 but the Decimator blows it away. It's the only noise gate I would ever consider.
